When I was little i thought that if you ate too much gum it would all gather in your butt-hole, and the only way out was to have a doctor squirt orange juice (like from oranges) up your butt, through a tury baster.

I had been always swallowing gum when it was bad for me and now I've stopped. This is because one time when after chewing gum. I was asked what happened to it. I said that I chewed on it and let it down my throat. My brother replied that swallowing gum is bad for me. I kept telling him I didn't swallow it. But he kept trying to correct me. This was because I thought to 'swallow' meant to eat with just a few bites when it had actually meant to put from inside your mouth to your throat.

When I was about 5 years old, I had chewing gum for the first time, and I was told I couldn't swallow it. However, I ended up swallowing it anyway, and concluded that I was the only person who could swallow gum and that I was smarter than everyone else, because they couldn't swallow gum.
A couple of years later, my brother told me that if you swallow chewing gum, it stayed in your stomach for seven years, and I believed him. I was then terrified of swallowing gum, and I counted how many years it would take before the gum I'd previously swallowed would come out...

My mom told me that gum couldn't be digested, so you shouldn't swallow it.

I thought this meant that is I swallowed my gum is would just sit at the bottom of my stomach for the rest of my life.

So every time I chewed gum and did swallow it, I imagined that that chunk went down and added itself to the pile of undigested gum.

the first time I ever had gum, my mom told me not to swallow because it was bad for you. She left the room and came back twenty minutes later and saw me drooling. I did not understand you could swallow saliva.

When I swallowed gum I imagined it sticking to the inside walls of me, specifically in my arms, and thinking that there was plenty of room if I accidentally swallowed more gum.

When I was a kid I used to chew gum all the time. My mum used to tell me that if you swallowed it, it would get wrapped around your ribs and get stuck in your chest. Quite a troubling image and i still get nervous if i cough with gum in my mouth

When I was about 8, my mom joked to me that if you swallowed chewing gum it'd gum up your guts.
I spent weeks terrified of swallowing chewing gum and that I'd die. One day I fell of my bike and swallowed some by accident. I ran back home, crying like crazy. My mom asked me what was wrong, and started laughing when I explained that it wasn't the fall, but the "chewing gum thing". They still rib me about that.

My mom didn't want me to choke on bubblegum when i was younger, so she always used to tell me that if i ate bubblegum while riding in the car, or talked with it in my mouth, it would automatically roll down my throat and would choke.
